Delivered to US Navy in May 1945 it was converted to TBM-3R version in 1953 and assigned to VR-22 at NAS Norfolk. It went on to become N3966A, in 1989 G-BTDP and in 2006, HB-RDG. Until 2009 it was flown as a 3R, a seven-seat Carrier transport in VR-22 livery "Charlie´s Heavy". During 2010 an upper ball turret was fitted and it now carries French Navy livery of Escadrille 4F. Since 2012 flies in markings similar to TBM-3 of Marine Carrier Air Group MCVG-4 from USS Cape Gloucester (CVE-109) at the end of Pacific War.
